Authentic Thai food. The atmosphere is quaint and peaceful. The food was very, very good. I had the Tom Kha Ga soup and Thai BbQ chicken. It was intoxicating. I asked about my favorite Thai dishes not on the menu...just ask and they will try to accommodate.

We do a lot of road trips and try to support locally owned restaurants. Give Thai 55 a try. We ordered 2 dishes for carry out. The owner made sure mine was "not too spicy." He added an extra kick to my husbands dish (just the way he likes it). The flavors all blended together perfectly. We both enjoyed our meals. The owner is super friendly and happy to chat with you. He loves talking about playing golf.

Ordered takeout with BJ and met him when I picked up my order just before closing. Super friendly guy! I wanted to have leftovers for later and ordered 3 dishes. A) Tofu / basil fried rice : onions, fresh green beans, basil with egg. Love the fresh green beans, quite crunchy without being raw. B) Tofu / Pad See Ew : broccoli florets. Very fresh and lightly crunchy, not overcooked at all. C) Drunken seafood : mussels, scallops, large shrimp, and squid with red & green bell peppers plus noodles. I didn't realize this dish had thick rice noodles, I probably didn't need my other noodle dish. Place seemed to be a family run Thai place. Located in the same lot as the Exxon gas station (until they move locations next year). Easy to drive up to and not hard to find. I really enjoyed the seafood noodle entree, I'll definitely be back! Note: Accepts credit card and phone in orders!

I don't have much experience with Thai food but I'm determined to find something I enjoy. I wish I would have tried the Pad Thai to compare other Thai places to get a sense but tried the BBQ chicken and shrimp fried rice instead. The waiter was pleasant, and I enjoyed the sweet and sour soup that was served.

I have eaten here three times now and the food has always been on-point and authentic, with generous portion sizes. There is great variety on the menu, so there is something for everyone. The restaurant serves wine and sake, which is a plus when dining here for dinner. The servers are also very courteous and friendly. Love this place.

I can't even describe how amazing this food was. The flavors were simple but very, very comforting and delicious. I'm going back to get lunch there today.

Absolutely Delicious 😋 😍. Thai food here is on target and there is a multitude of choices for every palate. All variation of hot so if you are afraid of spicy don't be; not hot to very hot is here. So you have a choice. If you want something different and tasty this is where to go! Please note that they will be moving from this location sometime in September not too far away.
